Every time I dance I turn into a better version of me - anon

Keep improving that great version of yourself every Friday at Swing City. We get to play with Cha Cha this week in the workshop at 8pm. A Ballroom, Latin and Swing dance follows the workshop.

New Classes for September are listed on the Lessons Page. Great beginner classes for your family and friends.

Outdoor dance events Mondays and Tuesdays. Dance to live music every week this summer.

Only one summer dance camp left on the island: The Dance Fest schedule for August 18th & 19th is at http://ballroomnanaimo.ca/events/dance-fest/ and tickets are available from John.

Many of you will want to come to the camp just for the BBQ: http://ballroomnanaimo.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/2017-Nelson-BBQ-Menu.pdf

Aunty Acid says:

I have a split personality… One side loves chocolate. The other side loves wine.

If we’re not meant to have midnight snacks why is there a light in the fridge?

Instead of having a sign that says ‘Do not Disturb’ I need one that says ‘Already Disturbed, Proceed with Caution.'

I enjoy long romantic walks… …to the fridge

Behind every great man Is a woman rolling her eyes

I always start my diet on the same day Tomorrow

I really need a day between Saturday and Sunday
